Griffin Lab

Calling all Griffins! 
After school homework help is available! 
If you need a little extra help with homework, or a quiet place to study, come by the Media Center for math and science help, and the College and Career Center for English, world language, and social science help after school from 2:37-4:00pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays! Our awesome and highly qualified LAHS teachers are available to answer questions and lend some help during this time. 

New College and Career Center
During the construction chaos, the College and Career Center got a new home! We are now at the bottom of the round building, facing Los Alamitos Blvd, formerly Room 754. Come by at nutrition, lunch, or after school to say "hi", get a work permit application, check in about scholarships, or to ask questions!

Rotary Student of the Month
Congratulations to our 
January Student of the Month, 
Louie Gallagher!
This outstanding student 
participates in our ROP/CTE programs, and 
was recognized by the 
Los Alamitos/Seal Beach Rotary Club.

Jackie Sherman, Louie's digital media and art teacher says, "Louie excels in digital media on multiple platforms. On top of hosting the high school's bi-weekly news show he is also directs, shoots, edits his own segments and strings each episode together.  He's the backbone of the production helping to guide others as they come up. Louie pitches quality content by coming up with insightful, producible, and unique ideas. Still, almost more importantly than any of this, he has something that cannot necessarily be taught. He has the motivation and the can-do personality to really make it in the industry. I expect to hear big things about this kid."
